Problem connecting FP Audio (pin specs)

  1. Hi,

    I need some help with one of my desktops at home. It has a:
    DYNAPOWER D58-BK ATX case and an ASUS P4S800 motherboard.
    I never plugged the front panel audio because I wasn't gonna use it, but now my roomate is using the pc because his blowed up and he would like to be able to use the front audio.

    I have tried to plug it but the names on the pins aren't the same. In fact they are all different.

    The pinouts on the mob are:
    First row: AGND, +5VA, BLINE_OUT_R, (NO PIN), BLINE_OUT_L
    Second: MIC2, MICPWR, Line out_R, NC, Line out_L

    The ones from the front panel of my case are:
    GROUND, GROUND(2), MIC-IN, RET-R, R-OUT, RET-L, L-OUT

    I know that R-out and L-out are probably the Line out_R and Line our_L and the RET (return) ones prob go with BLINE_OUT_R and L (my guess is the mean back line)

    What I'm not sure about are the 2 grouns that come from the front panel and if I have to plug the MIC-IN on the MIC2 or the MICPWR..

    No idea if the +5VA and the NC have any use with my front panel


    Can anyone help? It is much appreciated...

    Thanks!

    I think AGND should be one of the 2 grounds that come from the front panel.

    AGND - GROUND
    MIC IN - MICPWR

    the rest are easy to figure out
